    American history has taught us it's that a small cadre of self-interested people facing massive consequences for their past actions will never come out favorably when they threaten to collapse a large economy.

    If it works for the bankers against the people, why can't it work for the people against the bankers?  The high minded, moral part of me finds it as repugnant when bankers do it to the American economy, and when the Irish say they'll do it to the Euro-zone.  But as we've seen over the past 11 years, the ethics and morality of a position don't matter for shit or shinola anymore.

    Let them eat banks.

    Democracy is often an indictment of the voting populace.
